Intel launches Celeron G460 with HyperThreading and HD support

Intel has updated its price list, and it shows a new Celeron Sandy Bridge generation exploiting the LGA 1155: the G460. It has a frequency increase compared to the G440, and the Hyper-Threading.

  • Celeron G440 : 1 core, 1 thread, 1.6 GHz, 1 MB cache, 37$
  • Celeron G460 : 1 core, 2 threads, 1.8 GHz, 1.5 MB cache, 37$
  • Celeron G530 : 2 cores, 2 threads, 2.4 GHz, 2 MB cache, 42$
  • Celeron G540 : 2 cores, 2 threads, 2.5 GHz, 2 MB cache, 52$
  • Pentium G620 : 2 cores, 2 threads, 2.6 GHz, 3 MB cache, 64$
  • Pentium G630 : 2 cores, 2 threads, 2.7 GHz, 3 MB cache, 64$
  • Pentium G840 : 2 cores, 2 threads, 2.8 GHz, 3 MB cache, 75$
  • Pentium G850 : 2 cores, 2 threads, 2.9 GHz, 3 MB cache, 75$
  • Pentium G860 : 2 cores, 2 threads, 3.0 GHz, 3 MB cache, 86$

Indeed, the newcomer takes the price target of $ 37 per 1,000 units, but has some additional advantages up its sleeve. Intel has given only one core, 1.5 MB L3 cache instead of 1MB and the Hyper-Threading. In terms of frequency, it goes from 1.6 GHz to 1.8 GHz.

The thermal envelope (TDP) is equal to it’s little brother, that is to say 35 watts. It has HD Graphics, which provides high definition content support, but without “post processing” (Intel Clear Video HD).

Despite this adjustment, the Celeron G530 is a much better choice because for only $5 more it has 2 cores and a significantly higher frequency.
